Dick Johnson
OAB Hall of Fame
Inducted 2004

For over five decades, Dick Johnson’s career path has allowed him, as he put it, “to play every day.” He began at Northwestern University’s WNUR with “Over the Coffee,” a morning talk show. After college he joined NBC Radio in Chicago and later became the first TV operations director for WNBQ. From 1970–’77, Dick and his partner put KWEY AM & FM on the air in Weatherford. Dick sold the stations in 1991, but continues to be an integral part of the operation through news, sales, and “Conversation Corner,” his daily talk show. A Past President of OAB, Dick is a broadcaster
committed to excellence and service to his local community.
